    Great episode.
    And thanks for the great answer to my influenza question. It turns out, though, that about 2 days after I submitted that question I made it to your Virus Assembly lecture on iTunes U, and you cleared it up very well in the lecture.

    It’s really interesting how sophisticated viruses can be when you don’t expect it.

    It’s ok that you got the answer to your question before we read it on
    this episode – remember that thousands of others are also learning.
    TWiV is not just for one person.
